Foresight in the Public Policy Making of other Countries and Transnational Organizations

This chapter discusses the public strategic foresight systems of two countries, Singapore and the US, which have put considerable effort into strengthening their national security through various intelligence practices. This discussion is continued with examples of three transnational organizations, OECD, UNIDO and IIASA, and strategic foresight systems. These examples have not been selected because they have put more effort into strategic foresight than the others, but because they are genuinely transnational and open for information distribution.
